Insects fly in a dump yard as a ragpicker collects scraps, on the outskirts of the southern Indian city of Hyderabad November 24, 2010. Global emissions of planet-warming carbon dioxide are on track to hit a record in 2010, a leading annual study said on Monday, driven largely by booming economies in China and India and their reliance on coal.

Alik Nuryshev, 20, a local resident suffering from childhood disability including epilepsy and cerebral palsy, sits in his house in the village of Muslyumovo November 18, 2010. The village is located on the banks of the Techa river in Russia's Urals, one of the country's most lethal nuclear dumping grounds. The Mayak nuclear complex located 30 km (18 miles) from Muslyumovo, currently processing foreign radioactive wastes, dumped 76 million cubic metres (2.68 billion cubic feet) of highly radioactive waste into the river from 1949 to 1956.

Members of Brazil's Movimento dos Sem-Teto (Roofless Movement) shout slogans to protest against their eviction from the balconies of the former Brazilian Palace Hotel in downtown Sao Paulo early morning November 25, 2010. The building, which spans 15 storeys, was taken over about two months ago by 1,200 people from the movement. Each of the 43 suites of the hotel, which was in operation until the 1980s, has been occupied by at least nine people, usually from the same family. The occupants will be evicted by court order later in the day. Sao Paulo currently has about 14,000 people living on the streets, with more than half of them in the city centre, according to local media.
